Librivox recording of Ann Veronica by H. G. Wells.
Read by Joy Chan.

Ann Veronica was a controversial book detailing the development of a naive school girl into a "New Woman". When it was published, the Spectator described it as a "poisonous book ... capable of poisoning the minds of those who read it." Although it is unlikely to offend modern listeners in this way, this novel addresses many feminist issues that are still relevant today. (Summary by Joy Chan)

Subject: Something A little Differerent From H. G. Wells
Ann Veronica leaves the home of her sheltered childhood to find her own path forward in London. Nothing about her upbringing has prepared this naive young girl for this drastic step.

While written a century ago, the story seems surprisingly modern. I think Wells drew a an honest portrait of innocence seeking something beyond a narrow life.

Very nicely read by Joy Chan

Subject: Interesting book, well read.
This is an interesting book, written at an interesting point in time, featuring a newly liberated young woman at the time of the suffragettes.

It's an enjoyable book that feels very modern for the time in which it was written, which is read very ably by a young female reader with a very light Australian accent. Her accent is very soft and so sounds British at some points, making the reader seem very appropriate for the work.

All in all a very interesting book that I very much enjoyed listening to.
